Can you help me to identify this serif font? (Museum Buenos Aires)

Question

The one for "Maps, geopolitics and Power".  It was used for an expo named "Verboamerica" displayed in a Museum at Buenos Aires. Thanks in advance.

The typeface is Alt-Mediäval, originally designed by Max Hertwig and released by H. Berthold AG in 1914. I am not aware of a commercially available digitization and assume that the version used for the exhibition is private, and was maybe exclusively made for the occasion.

If you are looking for other options, I can recommend Henriette, which has a similar warm feel and comes as a fully equipped OpenType family in a range of styles. If you are fond of the low-waisted ‘P’ and ‘R’, have a look at Aureata, which is a charming retro typeface suitable for display purposes.

It has some in common with Belwe-Antiqua, of which Bellwether Antique is the closest digitization. 

When was the expo?
